Hey all. Just thought I would bring up a point of discussion that there might be some differing opinions on. Does the body fat % that you are at affect the lean body mass / fat gain ratio during a bulk?
From Chris Shugart:
I just wasn’t lean enough to bulk! I am now. Lean individuals gain less fat and more muscle when overfeeding when compared to their fatter counterparts
From Prox X:
I personally think this is complete bullshit and would love for soemone to prove to me that you somehow gain more body fat if your starting is 15% than if it is 10% if all other factors are the same. That body fat percentage number is possibly the most abused piece of info in the gym next the home phone numbers of the girls working the front desk.
So, it’d be nice to see what peoples opinions on this are and what studies they have to back them up. Also, ProfX wasn’t criticizing Shugart, I pulled the quotes from different threads.
